Quantum Mechanics, Squishy Materials, and Extreme Photosynthesis

The first video in a new series profiling MGHPCC seed fund collaborations

by Helen Hill

The MGHPCC seed fund is allowing Alfredo Alexander Katz (Material Science, MIT) and Alán Aspuru-Guzik (Quantum Chemistry, Harvard) to combine computational techniques from materials science with computational thinking from quantum chemistry. In this video Alfredo and Alán describe more about their collaboration and the new science it is enabling. Continue reading Quantum Mechanics, Squishy Materials, and Extreme Photosynthesis

Under the Hood Part II: The Data Hall

Part II in a series documenting the MGHPCC building

by Helen Hill

Following on where Under the Hood – Part I: The Ground Floor left off, in this video, the MEP (mechanical, electrical and plumbing) manager for the MGHPCC construction project, Greg Webster (Turner Construction) narrates a second virtual tour of the building, this time focussing on the upper floor of the two storey structure. Using the building information modeling tool Navisworks the tour provides a clear picture of how the computers will be housed, with multiple “pods”, being serviced by a complex system of distributed power, cooling, sprinkler and network infrastructure.
